Cool idea. Could use more mouth movement.

April Slocombe:

While the running of the dogs is continuous, it is convincing, I like the use of follow through and overlapping action with their ears moving and I like their lip sync as well.

Zoe Piel:

Too many feet!

Lance Erickson:

The audio clip doesn't suit well with these running dogs.

Derek Stewart:

Nice to see some variation in ideas, although there's not a lot happening with these characters. If you polish this up, I'd suggest adding some low branches, maybe some obstacles in the road.. anything to break up the action a little here. Nice attitude in the eyes though. I like the subtext there.

Matthew Kenyon:

The running movement is very stiff, and the camera angle is very awkward.

Adam Singer:

I like the action and the idea, and the mood of it. The run cycles feel like they need more work... might be hard cause the paws are so big. But that would help.

Jaime Colque:

good job, I think it will be in the top, I would like to know more of the story.

Jan Abero:

This is Beautiful, Especially for quadruped animation.

Luke Bridger:

woo hoo!!! quadraped animation!!! the render is what lets this down. should have done a playblast as its so dark we cant see the phonemes.

Akshay De:

haha you found a way to cheat yourself out of the body expressions. good job.. full points for being satan. but unfortunately the lighting is too dark. makes it impossible to see your lips properly. but from what little I can see.. it could be a lot better with the facial expression

Joel Murphy:

I like the animation! If on dog was having a hard time keeping up with the other. (vary the distance between them a bit more)

Sophie Bracmard:

It's basically just a run cycle with some lipsync. You should try to be more creative next time.

Luke Morin:

Interesting visual style. It seems a little too mechanical for me.
